Dry eyes are an issue for many people. Some may have dry eye syndrome, while others might just be experiencing the effects of weather changes or prescription medication. Regardless of the reason, it is important to know how to combat these symptoms. Dry eye is a condition where a person's eyes do not produce enough tears to keep them lubricated. If you have been experiencing this issue for quite some time, then it is time to talk with an eye doctor to discuss your options. Don't suffer alone with dry eyes; contact The Eye Care Center Limited by Albina Optometric to schedule an appointment with one of our eye doctors.
